Rosie Huntington

Huntington-Whiteley was born at the Freedom Fields Hospital in Plymouth, Devon, England. Her mother, Fiona (née Jackson), is a fitness instructor, and her father, Charles Andrew Huntington-Whiteley, is a chartered surveyor.[5][6] She has two younger siblings; a brother, Toby, and a sister, Florence. Her paternal great-great-grandfather was politician Sir Herbert Huntington-Whiteley, 1st Baronet; Herbert's son, Eric, was the "black sheep" of the family, and had married Rosie's great-grandmother, Enid Kohn, who was from a family of Polish Jews who immigrated to England in the 1870s.[7] Rosie's paternal grandmother was the daughter of Jacob Franks, a Sussex surgeon.[8]

Huntington-Whiteley grew up in Tavistock, Devon, on a farm.[9] Growing up in Devon, she was bullied and teased at school for having a double-barrelled name, no breasts, and for her full lips (now one of her most famous assets).[10] She got voted Miss Big Mouth because she talked constantly and, after a growth spurt at the age of 13, Girl Most Likely To Become A Supermodel. Bored of her farm life, she was eager to get out and go to London.[3] In 2003, while studying at Tavistock College, she was discovered by Profile Model Management while seeking internships with several London based modelling agencies.[9] Her first gig in front of the camera was at 16, posing for a Levi's commercial. She spent all of her first cheque on a Ford Ka, even though she couldn't drive, thinking it would be the one and only time she would ever get paid for modelling.[3]
